Uganda Bukedo & Raffia African Baskets & Bowls

Bukedo is the local term in Uganda for banana leaf stalks. Along with raffia that comes from palm trees, these materials are renewable, plentiful resources. 

Bukedo creates a sturdy base that dyed raffia is coiled around to make this strong basket. These baskets are traditionally used for serving food in Uganda, and are safe for your foods as well. They look great mounted on a wall or propped on a shelf or even sitting on a table.

Although each basket is uniquely handwoven and thus varies slightly, you will receive a basket that looks very close to this photo. All Daraja Imports products are Fair Trade and handcrafted in Eastern and Southern Africa from local, sustainable and/or recycled material.
